Titanium Contact Fire Staff
The smoothest contact staff on the market! The Titanium Contact Fire Staff has excellent momentum but at the same time feels almost weightless! It glides over your body without effort, as if it is an extension of yourself. Contact staff spinning at its finest!
The body of this staff is made from Grade 9 Titanium which is characterized by its superior strength to weight ratio. This makes it possible for the Titanium Contact Fire Staff to be super reliable while being built from tubing with only 1 mm wall thickness.
The handling surface is covered with our 3.2 mm thick SuperGrip©. It has a soft, spongy under-layer and a sticky, dotted over-layer which does not get slippery when wet. Over the years we have tested many grip variations and this by far provides the best hold even when your body sweats. SuperGrip© is also suitable for contact staff spinners with sensitive skin or allergies.
Optional flowers slow down the staffs rolling movement. The rubber of the flowers give additional weight toward your staffs spin. Flowers are easily removable. The center point of the Titanium Contact Fire Staff is clearly marked. Added silicone protectors near the wicks to protect you from making contact with any heated metal parts or flame!
